No idea where this month went – I had one weekend away (cocktails are never a good idea!) and that’s pretty much it.

I read recently that some poor bloke’s pension fund hadn’t grown in 11 years due to the extortionate fees charged by his provider and thought I’d mention something closer to home. My sister has been over for a visit these past … Continue reading → The post Fees appeared first on Quietly Saving. ...
